What are the five biggest games on the Buccaneers 2017 schedule?
The Buccaneers enter 2017 with great expectations. Coming off of a 9-7 season that brought playoff dreams with it, the Bucs have gotten better. The defense is maturing as a group, and the offense has added weapons to an already potent group of players. The talk of a playoff run, and a deep one, is already in full swing before training camp has even started.
But before we can get there, we have to make it through the regular season. You know, those pesky 16 games before we get to the “tournament”. The Bucs do catch a bit of a break in 2017, facing the AFC East as opponents outside the conference. Other than those always tough Super Bowl champions from New England, the division doesn’t offer much.
